- Basic Search
In the Basic Search mode, the searcher selects one or more databases, enters words, terms, or phrases as either a Natural Language or Boolean Search. The system searches the terms entered as keywords.
- Advanced Search
The Advanced Search mode presents a variety of options to help the user construct an effective search in that specific database. In addition to entering one or more search terms, the searcher may combine terms using Boolean operators (default is "and") and specify the field in which the terms appear. The searcher may also customize the sort order and elect to limit the search by full text, date, document type and/or physical descriptors.

- Using search history
The user can save search results for future sessions, view search histories, update saved searches, or retrieve new records added to the database since the user's last search.
